SPINDLE DEDICATION 

The members of the class of 1985, 

Each of us knows a special person who really helped 

one see; 

What life is really like out there, 

and to decide what one wants to be. 

That person may be a teacher, a parent or a friend, 

Just someone we know, on whom we can depend. 

The help may have had nothing to do with a test or 

grade, 

When we just needed a friend you always came to our 

aid. 

To all you special people this book we dedicate, 

your help and kindness we do appreciate, 

Here's a little poem to each and everyone, 

Of those very special people for everything you've done. 

As a part of the class of '85 
Here are thanks from me to thee. 
To everyone who's helped me out. 
You taught me what life's all about. 

When I was down and needed a friend, 
A hand you were always willing to lend. 
When the team was losing the game, 
You cheered them on, just the same. 

My four years at Methuen High 
Were not easy, I can not lie. 
But you've really helped me through, 
So thanks again, for just being you!!! 



POWDERPUFF 



This year's powderpuff game was extremely controversial. The 
13-0 loss for the seniors took place on November 9th. Several 
eyewitnesses have reported seeing an exchange of money taking 
place between refs and underclassmen at "the rock" prior to the 
game. The names can't be revealed due to lack of evidence. We 
know who you are B.I., T.M., and S.T.

HOMECOMING 




The Homecoming Game was played on October 27, 1 984, 
against Wilmington. The Rangers came out on top by a score of 
21-9. 

Before the kickoff, the three finalist for Homecoming Queen: 
Lynn Bodenrader, Melissa Camacho, and Debbie Siggens were 
escorted onto the field by senior class president, John Bres- 
nahan; vice-president, Normand Vermette; secretary, Eric 
Boes; and treasurer, Tim Waites. The lucky winner Lynne 
Bodenrader was crowned by last year's Homecoming Queen 
Ellen Endyke.

THANKSGIVING DAY RALLY 




The Thanksgiving Day Game was all Methuen had left for a 
ticket to the Superbowl. You could feel the spirit in the air 
when we had our first night rally. The cold temperature 
didn't stop Methuen fans from rooting on our team.

The Methuen Ranger Marching Band marched 
its way not only through the half-time shows 
for the football games, and, of course our 
Superbowl Game, but, also, won 14 trophies 
in marching band competitions. The trophies 
included best drum major, colorguard, 
drumline, and music with a placement of first, 
second, and third overall. These efforts 
couldn't have been completed without the 
help and support we received from our new 
band director Mr. Richard Bowers. At this 
time, the senior members of the band would 
like to thank Mr. Bowers for a wonderful 
season and good luck in the future.

BLOODMOBILE 



This year's bloodmobiles were two of 
the most successful at the high 
school. Many students offered to take 
time out of their classes for the cause, 
and everything ran smoothly with the 
help of many seniors. The volunteers 
spent their time typing, taking 
temperatures, carrying pints of 
blood, or just talking to students 
while it was their turn to give blood.

A DRIVING LESSON 





Methuen High Seniors were given a demonstration on drunk 
driving on May 13, sponsored by the Methuen Police Dept. 
The three volunteers were Debra Battaglia, Bill Lambert, and 
Bill Ganley. When they got behind the wheel of the car, 
everyone moved away — No one wants to be in the way of a 
drunk driver. 
Please, be smart, life is short — don't drink and drive.

HOT LEGS CONTEST 




20 




The second annual HOT LEGS 
CONTEST was a thrill for all Methuen 
High girls. There was quite a selection of 
egs on display. We also had special 
guest leg appearances by Mr. Nick and 
Mr. Jarvis. Stormin' Normand added 
some controversy when he attempted to 
bribe Judge Hiller by taking off his . . . 
shirt! 

The crowd went wild when Gerry 
Blais' legs were chosen as the hottest 
legs around. And the chant for him to 
flex had soon begun. All in all it was 
great fun!!!

FIELD HOCKEY 




The future of Field Hockey appears to 

be very bright if this years group of 

young enthusiastic and dedicated players 

is any indication. Seniors heading this 

group into the season were Co-Captains 

Dawn Salvo and Carrie Callahan, along 

with Laura Grelle, and Rosemary Duerr. 

Exceptional players who made the All 

Star team were Dawn Salvo and Lisa 

Mignault.

CROSS COUNTRY 

mmm a 

| 1 i 





The boys cross country team led by 
captain John Kelley and seniors Mark 
Sullivan, John Wajda, and Lou 
Santosuosso ended with a 5-4 record, 
they also had three team members on 
the All-Star team: Tim Difalco, Dave 
Moynihan and Dave Flanigan. 
Congratulations and good luck next 
year! 

The girls cross country team had a 
very disappointing season due to the fact 
that they lost many key runners and 
didn't have a complete team. They hung 
tough and ended the season with a 1-8 
record. The team consisted of senior 
captain Lynn Marsan, Daniel Turgeon, 
Karen Breen; and Daniel Bergereon. 
(good try) girls. Thanks!! 



79 



SWIMMING 




The Methuen girls team ended the season with a 3-5 

record. They were led by senior co-captains Stephanie 

Hosterman and Kim Kuzmitski. Although this wasn't 

one of their better seasons they had two team 

members make a big splash. Stephanie Hosterman and 

Wendy Goule broke records in the 50 meter breast 

stroke and in the diving. Congratulations girls and 

thank-you Stephanie, Kim, Martha Kelly, and Sue 

Ventre for a fine season. 



80 



VOLLEYBALL 



The 1984 Girl's Volleyball team, although compiling 
4-9 record, showed tremendous dedication, 
determination and spirit. The team was led by Senior 
Co-Captains Maura Collopy and Laural Perusse. Other 
seniors involved were Beth Galvin and Josie Campos. 
With the effort of the whole team, the Rangers were 
involved in many close matches. Congratulations! 




SOCCER 




The 1 984-85 soccer team had a tough 

act to follow with last year's team 

placing second n the M.V.C. Needless 

to say they did a fine job with the help 

of Coach Robillard and Captain Tom 

Fyrer. They tied with league champs 

Billerica (2-2) and ended the season with 

an 8-9-1 record. Making the all-star 

team were Tom Fyrer, John Bresnahan, 

and Jeff Paris. Our Congratulations go 

out to everyone on the team!

CHEERS 




The cheerlcading squad was led by 
co-captains Brenda Callo and Michelle 
Viglione. They proved to be a big plus 
in cheering the Football and Basketball 
teams onto successful seasons. Other 
seniors included; Jane Destefano, Sue 
Wlodyka, Sue Griffin, Cherie Parkhurst, 
and Sandy McCarthy. Many thanks go to 
these girls from both the Basketball and 
Football teams.

Footbal 




They started off in the early days of 

August when most people were still 

relaxing at the beaches. They didn't 

know just how good they would be but 

Coach Klimas taught them that hard 

work and dedication would pay off and 

put them on the road to success. The 

"Rangers" were off to their best season 

ever winning their first 9 games. Soon 

the student body and the entire town 

started finding their way to the stadium 

to cheer on a simply super team. 

Then everything was put on the line as 

Methuen met rival, defending champs 

Dracut at the annual Thanksgiving Day 

Game.

It came down to this game, the biggest 

and most important in the area ever! The 

winning team would reign as MVC 

Champions and gain a berth to the 

superbowl. The gates opened at 7:30am. 

and the stadium was filled by 8:00 there 

was a record crowd on hand, in all 

10,000 people jammed the stands to 

watch one of the most exciting match 

ups in many many years. The Rangers 

were the first to strike as they went up 

7-0 then 14-0 then 20-0 as it was 

apparent that their dream would finally 

be realized. The final score was 20-7. 

The celebrations began and so did 

preparations for the Superbowl. 




86 



SUPERBOWL 







^ w 





December 1 . . . Superbowl Saturday was here. On the long 
ride to Sullivan Stadium tension mounted as this club knew 
that Plymouth Carver was the final test. It seems like the entire 
town went to watch as the "Rangers" took part in their first 
Superbowl challenge in the history of Methuen High. The First 
half inspired much hope as the team was up 14-12. The 
second half was not as promising as the "Rangers" found 
theirselves in an unfortunate position. The final score of the 
game was 14-18 in favor of Plymouth. 

Despite the final outcome of this years team was by far the 
finest ever and certainly one to be proud of. The example set 
by this years senior will be hard to follow due to the fine 
efforts of Chris Flanagan, Jay Tardugno, Mark Jozokos, 
Normand Vermette, Roger Hardy, Brian Smith, Bob Scarelli, 
Mike Collizzi, Jeff Baker, Tom Donovan, Dave Ramirez, Sean 
Caudet, Chris DiBenedetto, Sean O'Neil, and Tim Waites. 

87 



WRESTLING 




The wrestling team came up with a 

surprising season this year as they 

missed winning their second league 

championship by one loss to 

Chelmsford. The team was sparked by 

tri-captains Eric Boes, Tim Waites, and 

Doug Boes. The team also boasted of a 

State Champion as Eric Boes became the 

first to win the title in Methuen's 

History. Also Mark Jozokos became the 

first person to reach the finals of New 

England where he came up short but still 

had a fantastic season. Methuen's final 

record was 13-2.

BOY'S BASKETBALL 





The boys basketball team had a fine 
season this year, their final record was 
9-1 1 . The team just missed qualifying for 
the state tourney by one game. The 
teams outlook for next year looks good 
as many starters will return for next 
season. The teams success is owed to 
Co-captains Roger Hardy and Bob 
Szostak. Other seniors were John Wajda, 
Mike McGreevy, Chris Flanagan, and 
Sean O'Neil. 



89 



GIRL'S BASKETBALL 



The girl's basketball team, coached by Mimi 

Stott, had an excellent season with an 

undefeated record of 18-0. This giving them 

the MVC League Championship and a spot in 

the State Tournament in which they made it to 

the semi-finals. The team will be losing three 

seniors: Kathy Donnelly, Laural Perusse, and 

Dawn Salvo, so next year should be very 

promising. 
Good Luck next year and go all the way!

Bretton and assistant captain Ken 

Hewson. While showing their strength 

against the two top teams in Billerica 

and Central, the boys managed to tie 

them. Other seniors on the team were

held on strong to end the season with a 3-3 record. They 

were led by tri-captains Kim Bihl, Lynne Habib, and 

Lynn Marsan. Other seniors who helped the team along

GUYS AND DOLLS 



The second annual all-school musica 
was a huge success. Freshmen to 
seniors were involved; it brought so 
many people together. The off- 
Broadway version of "Guys and Dolls" 
brought both tears and laughter to the 
audience. The cast was led by Susan 
Zraket, Trisha Costa, Joel Borelli, and 
Gary Parker. Other seniors were Lou 
Farrell, Jim Castel, Dana Tannett, Bruce 
Whipple, Mike Ross, Tracey Zraket and 
Diane Wilcox. 

At this time we would like to wish Mrs. 
May the best of luck in the future.

JUNIOR PROM 



The JUNIOR PROM is one memory 

we will remember forever. It was a night 

we were able to dress our best and have 

the time of our life. With the great music 

played by the D.J. and the wonderful 

atmosphere of DiBurro's, it was a night 

to remember for the members of the 

Junior Class and their guests.

The Senior Class Play is a truly enriching 
event. It is a time when the students, 
seniors at the end of their road, come to 
encounter a vast variety of feelings. Among 
the greatest: the feelings of being 
exceptional, respected, and acknowledged. 
Every year the "actors" must unite to make 
the show a success. This year's play, UP 
THE DOWN STAIRCASE, challenged a 
comprehensive cast to work in unity — it is 
this experience that makes Ma's plays so 
special and heartwarming. It is a time 
when the cliques dissolve and only 
togetherness remains. It is, the Senior Class 
Play, an actual reflection of Ma 
Hovanasian's loving and caring nature.

THE WINGS OF SUCCESS 

It's 7:30 a.m. 

The day has just begun. 

Let's imagine that a graceful bird flies above us as we sit in Methuen High School's auditorium tor the last time. As the 
bird hovers over us he circles and watches below . . . from his point of view he can see the divisions of the class of 
nineteen hundred and eighty-five. As I look out into the audience I can visualize what he must see. And if all of you look 
to your right, to your left, and in front and behind, you should be able to see the difference as well. 

In our audience this morning, people who have similar interests are sitting together. This is what the bird would see: 

Well, a good question would be: Who has been the most successful in our class? Who has gotten the most from his 
four years here at Methuen High? 

Are the successful people the ones who got all A's, or the ones who threw the football the farthest? The person who 
went to the most parties? Does success belong to the "in-crowd" or does it rest with the "out-crowd?" 

The answer is simple: if you have made at least one friend here at Methuen High School — you, then are a success, 
because the only thing that endures the ravages of time is the bond between one person and another. NO monument is a 
better tribute to man's existence than the fond memories of a friend. Who can doubt the value of some friend to laugh 
with and share good times? Who cannot appreciate the support of another shoulder to lean on when times have been bad? 

We all have a special magic within us and the more we share this magic with others, the more we will be able to share 
one another's dreams. And, yes, tomorrow is yours if you dare to dream, for remember that man's source of strength is not 
brain nor brawn, but his heart, which is filled with the will and determination to live and fulfill one's goals. 

We will leave here today and many of us will never see our friends again. We will have the happy memories of these 
days to reflect upon ... As we go through life we must let the bad times fade away and let the good times linger — the 
friendships that we make shall last all our lives, but the memories of our friendships shall last as all as the stars shall shine. 

In a hundred years we'll all be dead, and people not unlike yourselves will be sitting in the very seats you're now 
occupying. So the same bird will be flying over the class of Two Thousand and Eighty-five. And, he'll give them all the 
same advice he's giving you today: "whatever you seek for your future, whatever you hope for, aim high . . . 

Your dreams are the wings of your spirit, and as long as you dream, you can fly ..."

SELF-RELIANCE 

Honored guests, parents, friends, and fellow graduates: 

We are gathered here for the last time as the Class of 1985. We cannot help having feelings of pride, accomplishment, 
hope and maybe sadness, as we realize that we are leaving behind what has been our world for four years, and beginning 
the next phase of our lives. 

We have been very fortunate to have been students at Methuen High School. We've had different opportunities to learn, 
we've had many excellent teachers, and we've made good friends. Everything we have experienced here has influenced us 
and left its meaning. All of us, as graduates of Methuen High School, share a common background; we have spent the 
most important, growing-up stage of our lives together. No matter what the future brings, we will always carry the 
memories of our sports' victories, our favorite teachers, and especially of today, our Graduation Day. 

Before I leave you, I wish to urge you, fellow graduates, to remember to keep your individuality as you leave high 
school and enter college or the work field, you may find that for the first time you must make decisions without the help of 
family or friends. 

Do not be affraid to be different or try something new. If you take the risk, you will never have to look back on your life 
with regret. Be optimistic, and don't be afraid to aim high. If you have been influenced to a great extent by friends or 
parents during your high school years, now is the time to rely upon yourself. 

This is an exciting time in our lives. Many of us will be making that first break away from our families and starting a 
new life on our own. 

There may be confusion, unhappiness, and mistakes the first year, but remember to have faith in yourself and you will 
not fail. I leave with you the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, who wrote in his essay "Self-Reliance": 
What I must do is all that concerns me, not what people think . . . Nothing can bring you 
peace but yourself. 

I wish you all, the Class of 1985, the greatest success and happiness as I bid you, farewell, 

Thank you, 

Cherie Anne Parkhurst 

Valedictorian, Class of 1985

THE FIGHTING OF THE UNKNOWN 

Faculty, administration, friends, relatives, guests, and fellow classmates welcome to the graduation of the Class of 1985. 
We face today with mixed feelings. Sadness, happiness, fear and apprehension are each desperately grasping and eating 
away at our minds and hearts. It is difficult to believe that four years of high school have gone by, and we face the 
uncertain future with apprehension. For four years we have been very secure, but now we are on our own and forced to 
make our own major decisions about our lives. 

I am not saying that during our high school years our minds have been stagnant. We have already made some tough, 
soul-searching choices, such as going to college, joining the military, or entering the working world. But now, however, 
without the aid of family and teachers, we must solve even tougher problems. Hopefully, though, the various people 
whom we have met have taught us how to consider, with independent and open minds, the options now are open to us. 

Security was fun while it lasted, but now we must proceed, not with fear, but with the knowledge and wisdom we have 
already gained. Today, we have basically tried to push the future into the back of our minds, for why have something so 
dreadful ruin our day of happiness? However, we can't hide from stark reality forever. To bring some measure of comfort, I 
leave you with these inspiring words of Channing Pollack: 

"None of us know what is ahead . . . The important thing is to use today wisely and well, and 
face tomorrow eagerly and cheerfully with the certainty that we should be equal to what it 
brings." 

Thank you, 

Joseph Gregg 

Salutatorian, Class of 1985 



156 



GRADUATION — A NEW BEGINNING 

Members of the faculty, administration, parents, friends and fellow classmates: 

Today, June 2, 1985, we all start a new life — our own. Up to this point we have not really been in control of our lives. 
During the past 17 or 18 years we have been guided through life by our parents, families, teachers and friends. Today 
when we come up to this platform and accept the white scroll, it will become our turn to run the race; the baton is being 
put into our hands. Whether we make it to the finish line with many laurels atop our heads or we stumble and fall by the 
wayside, will be our own making. 

The future will hold many good times and memorable events for all of us, but we are all sure to encounter some bad 
times, when the road of life becomes rocky. We have been well prepared to face the future. During the past four years, 
the teachers at Methuen High have done their best to educate us and prepare us for what lies ahead. Our peers have 
shaped our lives and have contributed to our learning experience. We have also gained much knowledge from our 
families. This knowledge will be our most valuable asset, and we will use it for the rest of our lives. We must use the 
knowledge we have acquired to light our paths in the coming years. When we encounter hard times, we must use this 
knowledge to discern between right and wrong and to lead us to solutions to our problems. 

So my fellow classmates, let us enter into our new lives with courage and determination, realizing that we now rule our 
own destinies. Let us put forth the knowledge we have acquired to guide our lives and to pursue our dreams. I wish you 
all the best. 

Thank you, 

David Ouellette

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1985 

By Tom Fyrer & Lynne Habib 

It all started in September of 1981 under the reign of our old Principal, Mr. Doloff. When we walked into the building 
of orange and blue, we felt that we needed a compass to locate the north and south houses. When we received our 
schedules during homeroom, the question which tracked through our mind was, "which way do we go?" We then pulled 
out our compasses, and we were all set. 

Our sports teams have been outstanding since our freshman year. The girls freshman basketball team went undefeated; 
leading the way were: Laural Perusse, Kathy Donnelly, Dawn Salvo and Holly Homsey. The football team also went unde- 
feated with memorable performances by Mike Colizzi, Mark Jozokos, Jay Tardugno, Jeff Baker and Dave Rameriz. 

The political aspect of the Freshman Class was the election of the officers. The people who were chosen to represent the 
freshmen were Sue Perry, Elizabeth Crabtree, Michelle DeMonico and Lisa Talbot. 

With one year under our belt and three to go, we were becoming more familiar with the school and its teachers. 

Mr. Francis was starting to get to know us, especially Mark Zraket, Joe Allain, Ricky Tardiff and Paul Donahue. Miss 
Cunningham was beginning to become well acquainted with Colleen Keough, Kathy Brien, Colleen Welch and Lynne 
Fortin. 

In boys' sports, the wrestling team had an impressive season with sophomores Eric Boes and Mark Jozokos qualifying for 
States. Jeff Baker, John Kelley and Bob Scarelli were members of the spring track team which finished with a record of 6-1 . 

In girls' sports, the swim team splashed to a 4-0-5 record with sophomore members Kim Kuzmitski, Stephanie Hoseter- 
man, Susan Ventre, Jennifer Golec and Martha Kelley. 

Under the direction of Mr. Isadore, the band travelled to Florida and received outstanding ratings in competition with 
bands from the Midwest and South. The sophomore members were Lou Farrell, Jill Black, Bruce Whipple, and Shellie 
Fone. 

The Sophomore Class officers were Kathy Kowal, president, Sue Perry, vice president, Lisa Talbot, secretary, and Paul 
Martineau, treasurer. 

Junior year started off with a bang, and we mean a bang. Steve Berube and his souped up 71 Chevelle travelling 100 
m.p.h. decided to test how fast he could stop and applied his brakes ten feet in front of a blinking light. Unfortunately, the 
blinking light did not get out of the way. 

Having viewed the sports scene, we found our soccer team finished its season with a record of 15-3. Contributing to the 
victories were Tom Fyrer, John Bresnahan, Kevin Bresnahan, Kevin Bretton and Mel Weagle. The wrestling team recorded 
its finest season in school history with an undefeated dual season at 14-0. Tim Waites, Doug Boes, Eric Boes, Mike Colizzi 
and Mark Jozokos all performed beyond expectations. The varsity softball team captured the M.V.C. championship and 
qualified for the States. Outstanding performances were given by Kathv Donnelly, Paula DeCesare, Rosemary Duerr, Diana 
Shaheen, Debbie Siggens and Diane Campochiaro. 

The Junior Prom was coordinated by the class officers, Robin Mello, president, Normand Vermette, vice-president, Tim 
Waites, treasurer, and Eric Boes, secretary. 

At the end of the junior year we elected the class officers, John Bresnahan, president, Normand Vermette, vice- 
president, Tim Waites, treasurer, and Eric Boes, secretary. 

The beginning of our senior year marked a change in administration. Mr. Doloff became assistant to the superintendent, 
and we were welcomed by our new principal, Mr. Jarvis. Along with Mr. Jarvis came many changes. The so-called senior 
privileges were no longer in existence. We were the first class in the history of Methuen High School not to have Senior 
privileges. Mr. Jarvis has also installed fences around the outer area of the school so that no one will escape. 

The girls basketball team had a superb season by going undefeated, winning the M.V. C. and making it to the semi- 
finals in the state tournament. They were led by captains Laural Perusse and Kathy Donnelly. 

To phsyche the school for the Thanksgiving Day football game, there was the first pep rally in twenty years. 

For the first time in the history of Methuen High, the football team gave Methuen High its first superbown berth; backed 
by the captains Mark Jozokos, Jay Tardugno, Jeff Baker, Tom Donovan and Mike Colizzi. 

The second annual Hotlegs Contest starred Gerry Blais, Mr. Nicholson, Jim Hamaoui and our beloved principal, Mr. 
Jarvis. 

This also was the first year in many years to have a school newspaper and a dedicated staff. Senior members include 
Amy Robillard, Cathy Wnek, Lee Ann Gearin and Michelle Davignon. 

On May 3rd, 1980 Seniors decided to visit Salisbury Beach. Many teachers were disturbed over this excessive absentee- 
ism which resulted in many tests. 

Senior year was closing out, and it was time for the class play. Star performers were Jeff Piazza, Sue Zraket, Cherie 
Parkhurst, Debbie Diorio and the unforgettable Paul Martineau. 

Although we are still being referred to as spoiled, pampered and mollycoddled children, the time has come for the class 
of "85" to bid farewell to Methuen High School.
